Finch proud of Australia despite heavy England defeat

Finch proud of Australia despite heavy England defeat

But they saved their best for Edgbaston, dismantling Australia to win by eight wickets with Waugh - who also won the World Cup in 1987 with victory over England - certain England can take more from that win than the earlier success over new Zealand.

Then England team director Andrew Strauss backed Morgan and his plan and could not hide his delight as he watched the win over Australia.

Australia had finished second in the group table after winning seven games, only to be out-classed by an England side they had easily defeated in the group stages.

Bayliss, who has been in charge of England since 2015 and led them to the top of the one-day global rankings a year ago, has a contract until September.

"It's annoying and I'm peeved off at the moment", he said, before stressing he was "pretty proud of where we've come from".

"We sit down about the 17th (July), three days after this World Cup final for that to be discussed", he said.

"So that was really disappointing how it ended, especially to put up probably one of our worst performances overall for the tournament".

The defeat was a great blow to the Australian team who have been serial champions and have owned the title five times.

Warner stood out with three centuries to make his mark after returning from a ball-tampering ban along with Smith.

Chris Woakes was England's star performer at Edgbaston as he dismantled the Australia top-order including taking the big wicket of David Warner to return figures of 3-20.

Although their opponents recovered to 223 all out, it never looked like being enough, especially when England opener Jason Roy was blazing his way to 85 from 65 balls. But Morgan insists he and his side will play with exactly the same positive approach that has got them this far.

Cricket's governing body warned it can "cancel the accounts and tickets we see being sold on secondary sites" and that the only way supporters can guarantee a ticket is through the official resale site.

"We have created the opportunity to play in a World Cup final".

But Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey echoed Finch's refusal to be down-hearted when he faced the media with six stitches on his chin after being by a bouncer from England's Jofra Archer.

Eoin Morgan and Kane Williamson both have the chance to become national heroes by leading their teams to World Cup glory for the first time.
